Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/12/18

Just one week until Deadpool 2 comes out! If only I was reading Deadpool comics and could link these reviews and that movie in some way. I guess I’ve just got to wait until Marvel makes that Squirrel Girl movie.

Lots of good comics this week, I enjoyed almost everything. I still think Exiles is terrible, but Domino, Runaways, Squirrel Girl and Detective Comics are still a blast! And Comic Book of the Week goes to the kick-off issue of the Justice League: No Justice storyline. It’s big and fun!

Meanwhile, if you live in the Rochester, NY area, I’ll be at the Flower City Comic-Con promoting Gamer Girl & Vixen next month! Mark your calendars!

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #980, Domino #2, Exiles #3, Justice League: No Justice #1, Runaways #9 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #32.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/7/18

We’ve got something of a light week this week, though a lot of nice comics came out. I think I need to start picking up some new titles after so many of my favorites got cancelled. I’m thinking of trying out the new Iron Man and Fantastic Four when they arrive, along with the big Justice League and Avengers relaunches in the coming months. Anybody have any comics they’d like to see me take on? Let me know in the comments!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the first half of Runaways. It’s as darling as I could have hoped for. But then it just ruins itself! For my money, I would definitely prefer a guest appearance by Julie Power over Doctor Doom in any comic book.

Molly agrees!

In comics I’m reading but not reviewing, another delightful issue of Rogue & Gambit hit the stands and it’s just as much fun as the rest. I can’t wait to see what writer Kelly Thompson does next for Marvel.

Also, I’ve dropped Marvel Two-in-One now that we know Fantastic Four is coming back. It’s an OK issue. Better than the previous issue, but I’ve decided to drop the series rather than continue to nitpick it to death.

Comic Reviews: All-New Wolverine #33, Amazing Spider-Man #798, Batman #44 and Runaways #8.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/24/18

Allow me to use this space as a warning to all: don’t get old! Apparently I’ve developed seasonal allergies! Ugh! This sucks! I want my face back!

Anyway, buncha fun comics this week, from Batman to Ms. Marvel to a big and epic Mighty Thor. Comic Book of the Week was a tough call between the delightful new issue of Runaways and the dramatic Mighty Thor, but I think Thor gets a nudge ahead for being such a milestone issue.

Says you

I’m so glad writer Jason Aaron is sticking with Thor for the forseeable future, though I’m disappointed that artist Russell Dauterman is leaving the series. Wherever Dauterman goes next, it’s bound to be amazing.

Comic Reviews: Batman #43, Mighty Thor #705, Ms. Marvel #28 and Runaways #7.

6 Thoughts on the First Season of Runaways

I am super late with this review listicle for the first season of the Runaways TV show. Not only did the show end several weeks ago, I also finished watching it a couple weeks ago. So apologies on the lateness of this review! Runaways was a fun show and I’m excited for season 2.

Pilot

TV Rating: 7/10 – Good.

I thought the cast of the characters was excellent and the special effects were not bad at all for a TV show on Hulu. It mostly captured the spirit of the comics and is a fine addition to the superhero TV lineup. The dinosaur was especially fun!

Join me after the jump for my thoughts on the first season of Runaways! Expect full SPOILERS for both the show and the comic!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/10/18

Here we go again! Last week, I complained that there were too few comics released that I read and review. This week apparently makes up for that deficit! We’ve got Spider-Man, we’ve got Hawkeye, we’ve got Iceman, we’ve got so dang many comics! Including the debut of X-Men Red!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Runaways! It’s a delightful issue capping off the first storyline. And just in time for me to finish the Runaways TV show, which I also enjoyed.

Mr. Twinkles! You traitor!

I’ll talk more about the Runaways TV show in a couple weeks. For now, I liked it and am looking forward to a second season.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #795, Batman #40, Harley Quinn #37, Hawkeye #15, Iceman #10, Runaways #6 and X-Men Red #1.
